Chicago, Ill. - The Lady Scarlet Hawks traveled to St. Xavier University for the CCAC Quarter Final Play-off game Saturday afternoon.

The Illinois Tech women came out looking to avenge themselves from the first time they crossed swords with the Lady Cougars. This is also the third time in 4 years IIT has met St Xavier in the CCAC first round. The game was physical from the first moment as both teams fought hard to gain the lead. Allison Pierce got the first caution of the game which soon followed by another caution this time on a SXU player. The teams came out even, 0-0, at the halftime mark.

Kay DurbinSt. Xavier took the lead early in the second half, with a goal by Kelly Steinhaus off a well executed corner kick. This ignited the IIT women to go on an offensive front. With the continual pressure on the Cougar defense, freshman Kay Durbin was able to get an excellent shot into the back of the net with a pass from Meagan Sarratt. This frustrated St. Xavier and three players received cautions, and their bench also received a caution for dissent. Grace Durbin topped off the cards with a yellow of her own. The Hawks continued their momentum and should have taken the lead on two occasions but failed to make them count. With only 6 minutes remaining in regulation, St Xavier scored their second goal of the game to end the Illinois Tech women's season.

"It was a fantastic effort, the girl's gave it their best," said Coach Peacock. "I'm proud of the girls for coming out and giving it their best shot. I can't ask anymore than that. We executed the game plan perfectly but came up just short. It hurts that we lost today but we have to put the whole year into perspective. The heart and desire showed by the players this season has been unbelievable. This is the closest we have ever come to advancing to the next round. Looking at the big picture this season has been a huge success. The schedule as been stronger than ever before, we have played three Top 25 teams, out of conference, and two NCAA DII schools and yet we still have a winning record. Not to mention the luck we have had with injuries. Broken legs, hands, toes and numerous knee injuries, you name it we have had it. It's been outrageous! We could have given up and started building for next year but credit to the girls, they never gave in. With everything taken into consideration we have produced our best ever season. We have made a huge progression, and the program continues to improve, year after year."
